It must look as if I abandoned the blog, but I only went on vacation. Several days away made a real difference in the garden, though, and I really appreciate my mother-in-law having kept it well-watered in my absence. Heh. “Well-watered.” Because it’s well water. I crack myself up.

The square where these cucumbers live actually sprouted both sets of seeds. The other double-planted square of cucumbers has only sprouted one set of seeds, though, so I don’t even know.
Curiously, the French breakfast radish in each corner failed to sprout. I find the symmetry oddly amusing.
I’m really pleased with how well things are turning out. We should be able to begin to harvest lettuce and radishes in another couple of weeks. My son and I split the very first produce, though, when I thinned out a few extra beet sprouts, and they were delightfully sour-green tasting, full of the promise of the eventual sweet roots.
